Check out the video above to see my picks for the best five games of Minnesota United’s 2018 season.
2-1 over Orlando City
This ended up being the Loons’ only road victory of the whole season. Yes, the whole season. We might as well enjoy it.
2-1 over Chicago Fire
The home opener was pretty fun. A beautiful day for March, a good crowd and a great team performance made for a fun one.
2-1 over New England Revolution
I swear the scorelines will change eventually. But Christian Ramirez broke his slump early in this one and dropped the “sitting duck” celebration, plus a USA-cup boosted crowd filled part of the upper tier.
4-3 over Toronto FC
Darwin Quintero’s hat trick in this game is undoubtedly the best individual performance this team has seen in the MLS era. So. Many. Chips.
5-1 over LAFC
This one came as a complete shock. For the Loons to beat one of the Western Conference’s best teams by four goals — well, it was something.
